This is exciting times for the Ebell Club of Fullerton. We are looking for women who care about our community. Our members come from many backgrounds and each brings their special talent as they volunteer in our projects.
We have much to do and would love to have you come and visit us. We recently sold our club house which is sad but does bring to light a great opportunity to work and give back to our community. We are planning a lot of fun events and many philanthropic opportunities for our community. Our club meets on the first Friday of the month, September through June at theFullerton Elks Lodge for lunch and a program.
We welcome you to come and find out "the info" on the Ebell women. Join us for lunch and meet our members.
The Ebell Club of Fullerton sold their clubhouse at 313 Laguna Road, Fullerton in 2013. The funds were invested and the club is very fortunate that they are now able to contribute and support many worthwhile community projects.
The Club established a philanthropy committee that researches all requests for donations. Each Administration members are selected to serve on this committee and philanthropy funds are set aside in each administration budget.
Since selling the clubhouse the club has made the following donations just to name a few.
Funded 2 police dogs for the City of Fullerton Police Department named Jax and Triton

Funded performances at Cal State Fullerton
Annual donation the City of Fullerton “Love Fullerton”

The Ebell Club is many different women sharing the same drive to make a difference in the community. We provide support to many community programs such as: Fullerton Police and Fire Departments, City of Fullerton, Veterans, Libraries, Scholarships and the signature
project of our organization Domestic Violence.
The saying “find a need and fill it” might have been the motto for the Ebell Club because all of the members give as much as they can of their time and talents and find that in the process, they are receiving so much more in return and make new and lasting friendships.
While community service is the purpose of the club, the club also offers many social activities such as canasta, crafts, socials and just having fun.

It’s hard to believe that the summer is over and the kids are “back” to school.
But, here we are in the month of September and the start of a new year for our club.
The September 4th, General Luncheon meeting has been cancelled, due to the COVID-19 State social gathering mandates. We are hopeful that they will be lifted for our October meeting. Alternatively, your Board will be discussing meeting location options, such as a “brown bag & camping chair” lunch meeting in a City Park or other locations. We hope to be able to provide a definitive answer in the October Echo, which will be available in late September.
Thank you all who contributed the school supplies for Crittenton in August. Beverly Berryman was very thankful to receive the items for the kids.Please bear with me as the new club President and navigating this Covid time. If you have any questions or suggestions, please give me a call.
